Jesus Christ came to replace the only God-ordained religion humanity has ever known with personal relationship. That is, God does not want religious activity – He wants a personal relationship with you. What religious activity He did ordain was only a temporary measure intended to pave the way for the personal relationship that was to replace it all.
Religion is about ceremony, rites, and rituals. It’s about recited prayers and group involvement. It’s also about heirarchy because every religion has a human power structure.
Personal relationship, by contrast, is about you and God interacting. It’s about talking…and listening. It’s about sharing experiences. God came to earth as a man – Jesus of Nazareth – so that we could relate to Him that much more closely.
If you want to rightly relate to God, forget religion and pursue a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.
The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.
